    2 plead guilty

    in Vt. meth case

    BURLINGTON — Two men face up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to manufacturing methamphetamine at residence in Island Pond.

    James Castrogiovanni and Kevin Dodge, both of Island Pond, pleaded guilty last month in federal court in Burlington.

    The Caledonian-Record reported that both men are scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 25.

    Castrogiovanni and Dodge were two of 12 people who were charged following a drug raid last November at an Island Pond apartment house.

    AG complaint

    to air Thursday

    A Vermont judge has set a hearing Thursday morning to hear a complaint from Republican attorney general candidate Jack McMullen about incumbent Democrat Bill Sorrell's alleged ties to a PAC that supported him during the Democratic primary.

    McMullen said Sorrell violated the state law saying such PACs need to operate without any coordination with a candidate when they're making independent expenditures on a candidate's behalf.

    McMullen points to the role of former Gov. Howard Dean, who he says both advised Sorrell about campaign strategy and appeared in pro-Sorrell ads for a PAC called the Committee for Justice and Fairness.

    Both Sorrell and Dean have denied any wrongdoing in the matter.
